Hi guys

I am waiting on a variation to come back and then I will be purchasing a moderator for a new stainless synthetic Sako 85 in .243 calibre. I am looking for something which is relatively short and light weight to go on the rifle, Preferably around a pound or so in weight though I would certainly go a couple of ounces more if stainless steel proves to be the more durable option.

I would appreciate any recommendations that you may have, or any moderators to avoid.

​many thanks.

What are these like in relation to muzzle flip and noise reduction. I have been looking into these and hear mixed stories about them

Being light, the flip is greater than a heavier mod, and the noise reduction won't be quite as good. This all has to be balanced by the weight though, and as I carry it more than I bl**dy shoot it when stalking, that was a major criteria.

All this said, I shot 2 bucks at 198 and 201 yards within 8 mins of each other, so the noise can't be a massive issue.

It's on the rifle when at the range as well, but with Peltor cans the noise is irrelevant, and the flip doesn't worry me

I have an A-tec maxim on my Sako 85 .243, It is a cracking Mod suits the rifle down to a T.

I have used a T4 on my Sako .243 for several years.
Relatively cheap, not much difference in the weight when compared with the A-Tech Maxim (A-Tech is lighter). Only adds two inches to overall length and good noise reduction.
I look after it so no problems with rusting. Jacksons recommend them for .223 but you will find that lots of people use them on the .243 with no problems.

ase ultra north star, fantastic stainless mod, works great on both .308 and the .270. good noise reduction and good recoil absorbing and no muzzle flip, not the lightest but the best one i have used by far, :thumb:
